  • 400g sweet potatoes, cut into slim wedges
  • spray oil
  • ½ tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 500g salmon fillets, skins removed, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp Thai green curry paste
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • a thumb-sized piece ginger, finely grated
  • ½ red chilli, deseeded and roughly chopped
  • 4 sourdough buns, halved and toasted
  • 2 tbsp low-fat mayonnaise


  • ½ tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • ½ tbsp soft light brown sugar
  • ½ red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled into ribbons
  • ½ cucumber, peeled into ribbons
  • ½ a small bunch mint, leaves torn


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Tip the sweet potato wedges onto a roasting tray, spray with oil, then toss with the chilli flakes and some seasoning. Roast for 45 minutes, turning halfway, or until cooked through and crisp at the edges.

  • STEP 2

    Put the salmon, curry paste, garlic, ginger, chilli and some seasoning into a food processor and pulse until roughly minced. Form into 4 patties, roughly the same size as your buns, and chill for 15 minutes to firm.

  • STEP 3

    Whisk together the fish sauce, lime juice and sugar in a bowl, then add the chilli, carrots, cucumber and mint, with a little seasoning. Toss well and leave to marinate for 20 minutes.

  • STEP 4

    Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and spray lightly with oil. Fry the burgers for 2-3 minutes on each side until caramelised. Put onto a baking tray and put in the oven for the final 10 minutes of the wedges, to cook through.

  • STEP 5

    Spread the bun halves with the mayo, then put the burgers on the bases, followed by the slaw and bun tops, serving any leftovers on the side with the wedges.
